How Ready is your Child for School?

As your child is about to start Primary School, this short questionnaire has been compiled for you to complete.

You should not expect your child to have fully mastered as yet all the skills listed.

Check to see how your child has progressed thus far and by doing so, you may highlight some areas in which to support and extend your child’s skills in the coming few months leading up to his/her entry into school.

School Lunches

lunch.2In January 2015 a new Government incentive was rolled out across Primary Schools in Scotland which entitles all P1-P3 Pupils to Free School Meals.

Menus for these will be supplied to Pupils, usually twice yearly, and are worked on a 3-4 week rotational pattern.  Orders for lunch are taken from pupils during registration so that figures can be given to our dining hall staff helping to ensure that all pupils receive their preferred option each day. – Sample Lunch Menu.MPS
